Journalists serve as watchdogs for accountability. They inform and investigate issues important to their readers, from human interest to the public interest, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University of Iowa’s independent newspaper, The Daily Iowan has been named the Best All-Around Daily Student Newspaper by the Society of Professional Journalists.
This prestigious honor follows its recognition as the 2020 Newspaper of the Year by the Iowa Newspaper Association.
I commend the team of collegiate journalists in the student-run newsroom at the Daily Iowan.
These awards show that your hard work and commitment to your craft rise above the rest. You're the cream of the crop.
Congratulations and keep up the good work.
